Extensive menu, delicious food, and solid wine list. This is where the locals eat, and for good reason. It's off the beaten track, but that's a good thing, and means it's rarely crowded enough to require much of a wait. Great for kids, too, with paper tablecloths they can color on. This is one of our go-tos. The only thing... More

Very good Italian in a little old building in Denver. The menu had great options and everyone in my group of 4 loved their meal. Also great desserts. The kitchen is open to the dining room so it's neat to see them preparing your meal. We found parking right across the street. Menu items very reasonably priced.

We really like the cherry tomato, live close by and it is a real gem. Treated well by the friendly staff, great prices and flavorful pasta - I love the seafood fettuccine - has a little kick and very fresh. Tried a few deserts as a family and all amazing - will be back for sure. Saw some negative reviews... More

We were staying at an Airbnb nearby and were starving when we were told about Cherry Tomato. We walked in and it felt like a perfect neighborhood, cozy restaurant. Our waitress was very sweet and kind and the food was amazing! It felt like a home cooked meal. The Puttanesca was just amazing as well as the Cherry Tomato salad... More

There's something magical about the vibe of a neighborhood restaurant. Cherry Tomato is a hidden gem nestled quietly in Park Hill and the food is fresh and simple and delicious. We were part of a birthday gathering of eight and loved Cherry Tomato. The family I was with has lived in the Park Hill neighborhood for 51 years. Our ages... More

Been back to eat here a few times when in Denver. Chef Tommy always cooks to perfection The pasta is always perfect and his lasagna is excellent. I feel like I'm home in Brooklyn at my favorite Italian restaurant. This is by far my favorite place to eat in Denver. The staff always does an amazing job of taking care... More

Have eaten twice for carry out and been very satisfied. Always busy and jumping scene. Food is soulful and have been happy with risotto and pasta dishes.

We had the worst dining experience I have ever had. We had a reservation made weeks ahead of time. We arrived, were seated, ordered drinks, drinks arrived and ordered food. A manager came over, told us we didn't have a reservation, yelled at us that we were messing up the rest of his reservations, and continued to berate us. We... More

The Cherry Tomato is not far from downtown Denver in a Park Hill neighborhood, but well worth driving to or Ubering too if in the area and craving Italian. It's a pleasant space with a nice menu of delicious dishes and the service is incredible. I had their lasagna and my friend had fettuccine with Alfredo sauce covered with mushrooms... More

We had reservations for a group of 10 and although we got sat within 15 minutes or so of our reservation, it just went downhill from there. Our server was very nice and polite. However, after she took our order the manager/owner/other server (not sure of the position of this man) approached our table and accused us of stealing someone... More
